New thermocouple on GE/rheem water heater pilot still won't lite


does the pilot go out when you let off the button? Or does the pilot not light at all?

If you dont get any gas at all to the pilot the the gas valve is bad.
Of you get a pilot light that goes out when you let go of the button then the therno couple is not reading the flame (needs adjustment so the pilot flame touches it)
did you kink the new thermocouple? or over tighten it at the gas valve.
if it was kinked its now toast,cant straighten them. If kinked and starightened the fluid inside has broken the inner seal and wont work.

Pilot will not light GE water heater Model # GG38T06AXK00


Probably not. There's no way to get a match to the pilot. It's just a viewing window. Any suggestions?

Bradford-white water heater wont heat water.the blower motor hums but wont blow.also,pilot light wont light,is this just a safety feature?


Water heater is not identified and gas valve is not known.
Review options below:

1) Add a comment and describe what gas control valve is on the water heater, and model number from label on side of unit. Include what you have tried so far.

2) Try unplugging water heater and see if water heater resets.
Disconnect blower from gas valve, then plug blower in to see it it operates.
This will eliminate or include blower as suspect.

3) Open following link to download service and product manuals to help troubleshoot exact model.

I have a 40 galon GE Smart shield water heater, Model: SH40T12AVH00, Serial # GELN0805V13908. The pilot light is lit but the burner will not stay on for more than 2 secods and then shuts-off.


I believe this unit does not have a standing pilot light and lights each time? Have you reinstalled all doors back into the heater? It sounds like the main burner is blowing the pilot off the thermocouple. You might try replacing the thermocouple. You can download a manual here: http://products.geappliances.com/ApplProducts/Dispatcher?REQUEST=SpecPage&Sku=SG40T12AVH00

How do i reset safty switch on ge gas water heater, i light water heater and as soon as i set temp the burner goes off


If your water heater has the flame lock system, there has been a recall and the whole burner assembly will have to be replaced. I recommend you call a plumber.

Make sure there is not a direct draft hiting heater. this wil always blow out flame.
It could be thermo-cuppling. If this is bad,it wont leave gas come in to keep piolet light lite. hope this helps. :)
